    sewing room

    We hung a piece of ladder in the sewing room to hold my baskets I use for projects. I moved my sewing table to the corner to get more space in the center of the room.The small baby bed worked really well.We added height to make it comfortable foe me.I can walk up to 3 sides if I need to(drawers at one end for cutters..my sewing room is much as is the rest of our home very eclectic. judy j

    i love your sewing room and your ideas for repurposing. i used an old swag chain from old ceiling hanging light. fastened across one wall and hung my baskets from it. but with the ladder idea you have flat surface to set larger baskets or flat plastic bags w projects inside. i have picked up several old wooden ladders since we moved to current home. dh alway asks why i am buying them. "they aren't safe!" i laugh. i don't have my sewing room finished yet but when i do i will have a few of my pretties reasy to be repurposed in my "new" eclectic sewing room hideaway.

    You have done a great job with your sewing room. Love the idea of the crib. It looks like a fun space to sew in.

    Very nice sewing room! The ladder is a great idea. I used to weave baskets and never know where to put the ones I have left.

    Looks great.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    I just love the fact that things DON'T MATCH. What memories! I use my babies' chest of drawers in my sewing room. Also their first grade lunch boxes. Lots of repurposed jars and miscellaneous containers. Even a kitchen cabinet, luggage, cansiter sets.
    One step at a time, always forward.

    love the ladder, we can be so resourceful about what we repurpose into usable items to make our lives as quilters easier. great job, I use a changing table to store my small wall hangings and table runners

    I'm with you Judy, if you already own the items and you can put them to good use, why buy new. Actually, I think the collection of odds and ends adds character your sewing room... thank you for sharing with us.
